Foundations Counseling in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor offers obesity and weight loss counseling to help individuals make long-term changes. Over the past 20 years, the rate of obesity has soared. While many people are able to make behavioral changes and lose weight, very few are able to maintain their weight. Our weight loss counseling takes a cognitive approach that makes it much more likely that people will be able to sustain lifelong changes in their eating habits.
Research shows that having support is one of the top four behaviors for predicting success in combating obesity, improving weight, and managing health. Foundation’s obesity and weight loss counseling provides you with that support for moving you toward success and improved well-being. We help you focus on looking forward in order to create stability and achieve better self-care in your daily life. When it comes to health, nutrition, and weight loss, it is vital that we look at the entire picture of who you are and develop a lifestyle that will work for you.
What You Can Expect with Obesity and Weight Loss Counseling
Foundations Counseling offers weight loss and obesity therapy in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor. With weight loss counseling, you can learn how to set healthy, reasonable fitness goals, and then address various emotional obstacles that stand in the way of achieving those goals. Many health- and fitness-related issues both trigger, and are triggered by, anxiety and depression. Our weight loss counselors will help you simultaneously address both physical and psychological issues.
Behavioral techniques can often help decrease an individual’s fear of hunger and cravings, and increase tolerance for these uncomfortable states. Weight loss therapists will help you learn to identify and respond in a healthy manner to dysfunctional thoughts that get in the way of consistently implementing diet and exercise programs.
Without exploring the psychological issues that may be triggering weight problems, most people will be doomed to repeat a pattern of self-defeating behavior. Cognitive therapy – because of its value in dealing with an individual’s thinking, distortions, and beliefs – is often the most effective therapeutic treatment for those who seek to lose and maintain weight. Cognitive therapy helps people make rational assessments of their weight and respond to their maladaptive thinking about eating and body perception with a more productive mindset.
